Gun Review: Ruger Security-9

Though they’ve been out of production for 30 years, Ruger’s “Security-Six” remains a legendary model, named for its six-round capacity (much like Ruger’s Single-Ten holds 10 rounds). Naturally, Ruger’s new Security-9 holds . . . Well, no. The new semi-automatic pistol holds 15+1 rounds of 9mm. Should we let that slide? . . . A prepper would. The […]

Gun Review: Savage 10/110 BA Stealth Rifle

Savage Arms has earned a solid reputation for making highly accurate, quality rifles at an affordable price. As soon as I saw the 10/110 BA Stealth I was drawn to its minimalist, modern chassis stock appearance and Savage’s reputation for accuracy. TTAG borrowed this example, chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor and put it through its paces. Though […]

Gun Review: BUL Cherokee 9mm Pistol

By Austin Knudsen My search for quality, affordable self-defense handguns for the budget-minded shooter continues. This time, my quest lead me to the BUL Cherokee, a full-size 9mm Parabellum/Luger semi-auto pistol assembled in Israel. I’m a fan of Israeli weapons. I figure a country that’s been surrounded by enemies bent on its destruction since its […]

Gun Review: Blaser LRS 2 Rifle

Blaser Jagdwaffen GmbH is a German firearms manufacturer primarily known for manufacturing high-end shotguns and multi-caliber hunting rifles in the European tradition, including the well-regarded straight-pull R-8.  In 1997, Blaser released a police sniper version of its now-discontinued R-93 action under the euphemistically benign name of “Long Range Sporter” (LSR). Blaser is a manufacturing firm […]

Gun Review: Military Surplus Browning Hi Power MK II

It was in its final stages of development when its creator, the legendary John Moses Browning, died at the FN plant in Belgium. From there, the pistol was completed by Dieudonne Saive and put into […]

Gun Review: Smith & Wesson Model 19-3

The Smith & Wesson Model 19 “Combat Magnum” was one of the most beloved handguns ever made. Produced continuously from 1957 to 1999, tens of thousands of police officers carried a Model 19 on their hip, including US Immigration and Naturalization Service and the US Border Patrol agents. While larger departments could afford to issue Model 19s as duty […]

Guns For Beginners: The GLOCK 43…Not For Noobs

  I’d been eyeballing the new GLOCK 43 (street price about $450) since the NRA Convention 2015 when I first fondled one. It looks and feels, unsurprisingly, like a skinny GLOCK. Now, I’m a GLOCK guy. I like them, at least in 9mm flavor, and I can’t tell you how many I’ve lost in boating […]

Gun Review: TriStar TT-15 Top Single Trap Shotgun

Trap shooters are an odd lot. While every kind of shooting has its own variations of guns and equipment, trap devotees and their tools seem just a little more out there than most. Whether it’s the glasses, the gear or the extra-long barreled smoothbores, shooting trap is its own animal. So when TriStar announced that […]
